Since it has gotten hot here in Arkansas my temp has been 80 at night and 81 in the daytime. Put fan on it today hoping to lower it a little. Will these higher temps encourage more algae growth. Is this adding to the problem? Running maxspect LEDs with no chiller. Room temp is a constant 69 degrees.

The temperature shouldn't effect the algae growth any.

I'm feeding every other day. Alternating granules and frozen rods food. Over skimming. Only a couple small pinches of granules. Nothing hits the floor. Testing parameters again right now. Red Sea phos shows .06. Hanna shows 0. Nitrates show o on Red Sea.

As far as flow goes. I bought two 600 gph heads about a month ago. I also have two 1600 ? Gph on each end of the tank plus the return. Not sure how big it is. My tank is a 110 and it is deep. That makes it even harder to clean the algae.

Sometimes it feels like this is the only option for getting rid of algae.



Just keep at it and you will eventually win the war. If I were you I would even increase the frequency that manual removal is performed.

This link has some good ideas on controlling hair algae
